Bachmann 2012.jpgGOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann will make a trip to Southern California in September to speak at the California Republican Party's fall convention.

The conservative Minnesota congresswoman is scheduled to address delegates on the first night of the three-day convention, which will be held in Los Angeles Sept 16-18.

CRP Chairman Tom Del Beccaro said in a statement that he believes Bachmann's "pure energy, vibrancy and leadership will be a hit with our delegates."

"This is a great opportunity for us to hear directly from one of the Republican Party's leading presidential candidates," he said.

The full speaker line-up has yet to be confirmed, though CRP spokesman Mark Standriff said invitations have been extended to other GOP presidential candidates as well. Attendees at the party's spring convention in Sacramento heard from Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who was then considering a 2012 run of his own.
